Month: August 2019

Happy in Havanas

Ten members and potential members met at our monthly Drop In yesterday at Havanas Coffee in Prestbury Road. As ever, the coffee and cakes were excellent, and the staff were most welcoming. They’ve made us a sweet little sign to book the space downstairs. The next Drop In is on Thursday 26 September.  All are welcome.

Butterfly heaven

Matt Brierley from the Butterfly Conservation Trust led a walk on 21 August for fifteen of our members around the wildflower areas in the park adjacent to Tommy Taylors Lane. He told us how to identify the commoner butterflies, how we can help them and pointed out the plants that caterpillars live on. As we walked through the wildflowers we spotted some large white, common blue and gatekeeper butterflies. We hope to repeat the walk in a different season of the year.
